Imelda's Wish

It all started with a birthday wish...

.... and thus Imelda's Wish is contained in this box. She requested for something hand-made and this is what I came up with...

This short necklace features a lovely cloth button, crochetted & glass beads to delight and a little "wish" tag to make sure that all Imelda's wishes would come true. ^^


On the knitting front, taking time to catch up with my knitting over the long Australia Day weekend. Juliet II had a growth spurt, but not much to deem it finished. So the knitting goes on...

Finally, one project finished!!! (Dad's Scarf)

Forgive the grainy photo, but I did try to catch the details to this scarf knitted using 15mm needles with Zara Col. 1468. ^^ This scarf is my dad's Christmas present... at which point during Christmas I presented to him still in yarn format. ;;^^ But anyway, it's done now and hope my dad will get to get at least 1 wear out of it during winter... for some reason I found the males in my life don't really wear scarves. Except for my older brother who lives in tropical Singapore. Go figure. :P


3 ends of Zara Col. 1468
A pair of 15mm needles
Darning in needles

How To:
Cast on 10 stitches.
1st row: *K2, P1, repeat from * till last stitch K1.
2nd row: *K2, P1, repeat from * till last stitch K1.
Repeat this until balls run out or desired length is achieved.
Cast off.

A Job!

I've finally been offered a longer contract with the university I'm working for before. However, I've been given the position at another department. Everything seemed so scary, but I guess it it part of going for that first full time job. I didn't know when I got this job, it was meant to be full time... it was really a do'h moment...;;^^

But anyway went for my first day today and they actually gave me an office. I'm still amazed even though there may be a slight chance of me being moved to another office. It was still an office. The place was like a maze and I'm also amazed when I went to staff room I saw a large flat screen TV!!!! With Foxtel on it... o.O

Unlike April's workplace the dustmites are a mix of male and female...;;^^

Anyway, everything seemed to be pretty much flexible, starting and finishing time etc...

I just hope everything will work out...;;^^

Anyway, hope I can knit soon... if only it's not so hot here...;;^^
